And I realised
The most urgent need of an hour is
To create a quieter place for us to stay
For we have lost touch
with our own voice
We are so much forced
With the voices around
That our own voice has
Buried itself somewhere deep down
In the ocean of self…
The voice
Which tells us
Who we are
What should we do
How to lead and how to be..
The essence
of highest living
Is gone
And we cry to shelter from outside
Just a bit of more quietness
Just a bit of more calmness
New connection with self
Like when in mountains
Or at the beach
I echo my own voice
My life begins from here and takes me infinite…
